A day of pride for the Techians
At around 3’o clock in the afternoon, the classrooms were emptying, no one was found to be in the canteen too; everyone seemed to be in a hurry and all the paths seemed to lead to the F block. The excitement and swift movement was due to the TECH day event, which was about to start soon.
TECH DAY is a very special day for all Techians. It’s the day when parents realize that their kids have grown to become responsible men and women. It is a day of recognition for those who have worked hard and excelled through the years and for a few others it’s the day they get to have free snacks and ice cream.
Hosting the event, were the members of the students’ council, well dressed in formal attire. The event started with a warm welcome address by Ms.L.Swarna Lakshmi, Associate of Students Union. Subsequently, Mr.Nandhagopal, Chairperson, Students Union, gave a detailed report on the student activities of the year 2016-17.

Born in an agricultural family, he took up automobile engineering as he was very passionate about cars. He congratulated the prize winners and started his speech saying that the only source of knowledge is experience. He explained few principles like Vidhya (fundamental knowledge and clarity), Shradha (concentration and faith) , and Upanishada (persistence), that should be followed by the students to have a prosperous life. He completed his speech quoting “chasing money is like chasing your own shadow, so work hard to compete, as the competition is very high now”.
